Rock HIll, S.C. - The Owls came into Friday's game riding a 3 game winning streak and were looking to add another win in conference as they near the end of the regular season. The Bears of Clinton College, currently ranked #12 USCAA D1, had other plans. The Bears jumped on the Owls early, taking a big time lead. The Owls would cut into the deficit and would go into the half down 21 points.
The Owls came out inspired in the second half and would cut the Bears lead to 10 in the first 6 minutes of the half. Unfortunately for the Owls, that would be as close as they would get. As the buzzer sounded the Owls would fall 99-80.
"Rough start. Our guys fought hard, we just got hit hard early and weren't able to recover. We will continue to grow and get better," stated head coach Anthony Barringer.
